Lake Mead NRA offers year-round recreational opportunities for boating, fishing, hiking, photography, picnicking and sightseeing. It is also home to thousands of desert plants and animals, adapted to survive where rain is scarce and temperatures can soar.

Super easy hike. Love doing this one on a nice cloudy or rainy day. Every time I come here I see big horn sheep so that makes me happy. Check out the movie at the visitor center!

Hard to determine where the trail actually was. Very relaxing as we were really the only ones out in the middle of the desert.

Pretty view, but alot farther out than the signage indicates!

Great trail and variety in landscape to keep the whole out in back interesting! Husband and I would do this trail again.

It is more like rock climbing. Not hiking

Awesome hike! Must do it. We brought our 8 year old and he loved it. Fun!

Loved this hike the most in Nevada. I was by myself which made it pretty difficult to climb rocks and such. Hot spring was too hot to dip in and I heard it had brain killing amoebas so I only dipped my feet. Would do this again in a heart beat.

Had a great walk !! Gotta go see 1000 year old Indian drawings.

You should NOT HIKE this from May through September. VERY HOT air temperature and gravel wash hiking. Take A LOT OF WATER. Wear a hat. You can hike just to the hot springs or go all the way to the Colorado River and see the new bridge from below. It is a refreshing dip. Be prepared for the harder uphill hike out. There are stone-cut steps and ropes to assist and maneuver, but are not too hard. It can (is) be a miserable hike from May-Sept. Watch for rattlesnakes and scorpions in the warmer months. It is a great hike.

Best hike in Southern Nevada

Awesome hike which starts with a heavy slope the moment you step off. Last two pitches qualify as Class-3 climbs and a bit more if you shoulder two shepherds up the face to the summit...I did. Total time was 2:20hr and we finished the hike by cooling off in Lake Mead after the hike.

This is a spectacular trail! The tunnels are super fun and give you something to look towards. It is safe and I was sure footed every step.
